Getting Ready

My hubby and I are preparing for our first summer trip. We are going to New Orleans and Gulf Shores Alabama with our Senior Youth and Youth Pastor from church. Our graduates along with sponsors choose a location every year and take that last trip together before they head off for college. This is my first trip with this group and I am really looking forward to it.

After looking through my summer clothes, I decided I needed a few updates. I shopped this last weekend and found the shoes to the right at Gap. They had many colors to choose from, but I thought blue would match more of my outfits.

The outfit to the left came from Bass and the bag was from Gap. Besides shopping, I have decided to tan. I'm concerned that I don't have time or good weather enough to get some sun prior to the trip and I am very fair, so the sun will burn me quickly on the beach. I started yesterday with the tanning and just did 8 minutes. This was my first experience with going to a tanning bed. The 8 minutes went by fast and was very relaxing. I think I might be able to fall asleep in there! Luckily, they have a timer so I don't have to keep track of the time and stay in too long.

Anyone know of some must see's in New Orleans with 18 year olds? We only have one day there before we head to Gulf Shores. We are staying at Fort Morgan Alabama and have rented a beach house close to the gulf for the remainder of the week. Beach, beach and more beach for me!

I was married in New Orleans and honeymooned in Fort Morgan - there is plenty to do with 18 year olds!

I would suggest doing a cemetary, house, or Katrina tour in NOLA. Also, there is plenty to do just wandering around the French Quarter. Cafe du Monde, Jackson Square, St. Louis Cathedral, Royal Street, and the Cabildo are all excellent things to see while in the Crescent City!
